I Am a Night Owl

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 67,944 People

    I work night shift and I like it.

    I love sleeping during the day and being awake when the rest of the world is resting quietly. More money is made working at night as a RN but my husband wants me to go to day shift. I REALLY DON'T WANT TO.

    I hate day-time. Too many people around,

    makes it very hard for me to concentrate and relax. LOVE the night! So quiet and peaceful, everyone sleeping, no one around, it's so good. No pressure. It's just you and the universe.

    Yea, definitely. I don't why,

    but I always feel more alive at night. I become restless, happier, and it just feels amazing.

    I am most productive late at night

    or early mornings. Afternoons are kind of a waste really.

    Obviously. It's 2 am

    and I am wide awake. My "accidental" nap I had at 10 pm probably didn't help thingz much. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one up at this hour... The silence is nice, but trying to sleep during the noisy day stinks most days.

    I pretty much can't help it,

    I'm up every night till about three in the morning . It sucks when I have classes in the morning. But if it's Saturday and I have nothing family related to do on Sunday In the morning it's fine.

    The darnedest things are posted online

    when one stays up into the wee hours of the morning. Though the feeling of sleep deprivation often caused by the lifestyle of a night owl is almost an intoxicating high of a sort. One's actions are more natural, and their words less formal. The mind is less occupied by the worry...

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    why do they call it being a "night owl".

    .. why not a "night elephant" or "night snail"?

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    I wish I could just go to sleep whenever

    and wake up whenever. I'd probably be more productive too. This whole "sleep schedule" thing isn't really for me.
